Kate Garraway reveals Prince Charles reached out to her amid Derek's Covid battle

Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway previously spoke about a mystery royal who reached out to her during her husband Derek Draper 's Covid battle - and has now revealed it was Prince Charles

The TV host thanked the Prince of Wales for offering the use of specialist royal doctors to treat her stricken husband who is believed to be Britain’s longest suffering covid patient.Previously Kate has spoken of the “utterly surreal” moment when a member of the Royal Family got in touch with her.

In her memoir Kate Garraway: The Power Of Hope, she didn't name the royal but said they had kindly offered the services of a royal physician, to assist with his recovery. The 54-year-old, who has met the heir on several occasions described the letter as “lovely”.

At an awards ceremony today for Charles' Prince’s Trust Awards, Kate was heard thanking the Prince of Wales for his kind gesture.Speaking to Charles, Kate said: “And you, you might not remember but you were very kind to me because my husband got very sick with Covid after the last Prince’s Trust awards. headtopics.com

“You wrote to me and gave me help from your doctors, so thank you very much...and he did improve.Charles replied: “Is he better?”, to which Kate sadly said: “Not really. He’s got all the damage and all sorts, can’t speak, can’t walk.”Taken aback after seemingly realising that Derek was still suffering from the effects of catching Covid, Charles exclaimed: “Oh no! From the pandemic?”

Garraway: “Yes, he went down with it just after we were last here (in 2020) and we had the gathering and you did the Namaste, and it was just after that that he got sick and was in a coma for sort of 11 months.Charles: “That’s incredible how it affects.”

Despite being back at home with Kate and their children Darcey and Billy, Derek still requires round-the-clock care. Viewers witnessed the family’s very personal experience of the deadly disease in the moving ITV documentary Finding Derek.The programme left many in tears, as they heartbreakingly watched the psychotherapist open up about his struggles and suicidal thoughts.

Garraway: “It’s ridiculous, because I got it at the same time and I’m fine, and you had it as well?”Charles: “Well absolutely.”Earlier in the day, The Prince of Wales was moved to tears when a young man paid tribute to his college tutor for her support as he turned his life around with help from the Prince's Trust. headtopics.com

Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.The award winner became emotional as he thanked Claire McGarvey for guiding him through a trust course telling her "I've got as much love for you as my grandma".

Charles appeared tearful as the now 20-year-old spoke during the awards ceremony staged at St James's Palace and later praised the determination of the young people recognised.During a speech he said: "It really is marvellous to be together again in person after this delay of 18 months or so, this dreadful pandemic, then to share in the celebrations of all these wonderful young people.

"I find their stories have alternatively moved me, made me laugh and cry."So, I've come to know how proud I am of all of them and what they represent in terms of the incredible amount of effort and determination they put into all of this and to win their awards." headtopics.com

Among the guests were ambassadors and supporters of the Prince's Trust and its international body including actors Richard E Grant and Colin Salmon, Edward Enninful, editor-in-chief of British Vogue, comic Hugh Dennis, presenter Kate Garraway and host Fearne Cotton.

The 20-year-old from Darlington described school as "not for me" and later revealed his hopes of joining the Army were dashed because of an allergy, but he enrolled on a Prince's Trust Achieve course which gave him purpose and confidence.

While on stage the 20-year-old said: "Without people like Claire around us I don't know where I'd be, I wouldn't have a house, I wouldn't have anywhere to go, I wouldn't have job, I wouldn't have anything."Without the Prince's Trust I wouldn't be standing here obviously, I would probably be on the streets. Because of what the Prince's Trust has done, what all you lovely people have done I'm stood here today and I can't say thank you enough."
